Getting Back To Work, Safely - a GAP publication

GAP depots have reopened for installers to buy a range of plastic products but the company has put in place a safe 'collection only' process.

GAP (General All-Purpose Plastics) is taking every precaution to manage the wellbeing of its staff and customers. So here are the rules:

  • Only one customer is permitted to enter the premises at a time.

  • When entering, each customer is asked to stand behind the designated taped line to place an order.

  • Goods will then be picked and left at the shutter door for the customer to collect.

  • GAP Depots cannot accept cash - credit card payments will be required.

Return to work

Knowing how to safely restart selling and installing maintenance free building products such as GAP products and windows and doors from sister Rockdoor in the home can be a minefield. That is why the company has shared some important information and documents.

Getting Back To Work, Safely is the title of a downloadable booklet that has been produced by GAP. It is joined in a pack of downloads that include the GGF's 'Working in Other People's Homes and Working in Construction and Outdoors. There is a pre-populated form to print off and sign to give to customers once you have completed a risk assessment to allow you to work in their home. Added to this is are 15 posters with messages that vary from 'Do not enter the workplace if you have Covid-19 symptoms' to 'Wash your hands on arrival at work and regularly throughout the day'.

Resumption of manufacturing for Rockdoors & PVC-U windows

Rockdoors & PVC-U windows can now be ordered through the appropriate ordering portals. Factories have been adapted to follow safe working practices in line with government recommendations.


 “We hope Rockdoor and GAP customers can appreciate, there will be some disruption to our usual lead times whilst we operate at a reduced capacity temporarily. This will improve over the coming weeks as we get back up to full speed and increased staffing levels.”
